Posted 3/27/12

TLC 11Matt Bellace, a motivational speaker, author and standup comedian, was the featured speaker at the 2012 Town Hall Discussion on Underage Substance Abuse and at a two-day series of presentations to students in Bulloch County Schools' three high schools and Transitions Learning Center. The New York native is the author of “A Better High,” and he holds a doctorate in clinical and neural psychology.

Bellace’s message to students encouraged healthy choices and the dangers of drugs and alcohol. He spoke about the benefits of natural highs like exercise and music opposed to drugs and alcohol, which lead to bad pain that has long term effects. The programs were made possible by the Coalition for a Drug-Free Bulloch County and the Grants to Reduce Alcohol Abuse.
